  • Hey Shah Rukh Ali,

    There is no way to view your password history, as passwords do not get stored in a format that is viewable in a readable format. Passwords will be stored securely and can only be checked against another password, you cannot retrieve your original password back out as this would be a security flaw.

    There is third-party software to allow you to view current passwords you have set to remember for your accounts - however they will not be able to show you your password history either.

    Sorry, but I hope this helps!
